Pride in action is participating in marches. It’s riding in a parade. Or it’s as simple as saying, “Cheese!”
Founder Eric Edward Schell has photographed everyone from politicians, including Mayor Sylvester Turner, Annise Parker and Sheila Jackson Lee; to “RuPaul‘s Drag Race” favorites, transgender activists and even a former NSYNC member.
According to Schell, Pride, as part of his project, stands for Photographs Representing Individuals Deserving Equality.
“Visibility for our community is key to promote the humanization of a community that is dehumanized every single day,” Schell says. “(It’s also important) for people within our community to continually be reminded that there are others outside of our respective bubbles.”
